### Counting certain kinds of Semistandard Young Tableaux

We have a project in which it is natural to count the number of Young Tableau in which part of the weight has been specified. Does anybody know if this idea already appears in the literature? More ...

### Robinson-Schensted-Knuth (RSK) under restriction

I am curious about the following result concerning the Robinson-Schensted insertion procedure. I can formulate a proof via the Schützenberger evacuation operator, but I have struggled to find such an ...

### Counting integer partitions below some Young diagram

Question: Given positive, coprime integers $m<n$, consider the Young diagram $Y$ formed by the lattice points in the Cartesian plane lying below the line from $(0,0)$ to $(m,n)$ and within the ...

### Bijection between forests and skew SYT + Cyclic sieving

Consider the two-row skew shape $\lambda_n = (2n+1,n)/(1)$. The number of standard Young tableaux of this shape is $\binom{3n}{n}-\binom{3n}{n-2}$ (since one can easily biject this to the set of non-...

### On a proof involving Young symmetrizers acting on tensor spaces

I hope this is not too elementary for this site, but I already asked something similar on MSE which has not received any attention whatsoever. I am extremely unfamiliar with the algebraic/...

### Yamanouchi ribbon tableaux?

Let $s_{\lambda}$ be a Schur function. The set of all such functions are known to be a linear basis of the algebra of symmetric functions. The Littlewood-Richardson coefficients $c_{\nu\mu}^{\lambda}$ ...

### Status of conjecture of Conrey and Gonek, combinatorial meaning

I was looking at the OEIS on the number of square Young Tableaux. In it Michael Somos referenced a paper of Conrey and Gonek, High Moment's of the Riemann Zeta-Function. Is there an combinatorial ...

### A question regarding an analog of Young symmetrizer: the product row and column preserving subgroups without sign representation

Consider a rectangular Young diagram $\lambda$ with $n = pq$ boxes, with $p$ rows and $q$ columns. If $C$ is the column preserving subgroup of $\lambda$ and $R$ is the row preserving subgroup, then we ...

### Bender-Knuth involutions for symplectic (King) tableaux

First let me recall the combinatorial theory of the characters of $\mathfrak{gl}_m$, a.k.a., Schur polynomials. For a partition $\lambda$, a semistandard Young tableaux of shape $\lambda$ is a filling ...

### Consequences of Littlewood-Richardson rule

I am trying to read Deligne's paper 'Categories Tensorielles', and in the first chapter Deligne states some results obtained from the Littlewood-Richardson rule that I do not understand. He states: '...

### Refined reverse plane partition generating function

I have a simple question about the generating function for reverse plane partitions: $$\sum_{\pi \in RPP(\lambda)} z^{|\pi|}= \prod_{s \in \lambda} \frac{1}{1-z^{h_{\lambda}(s)}}$$ There's a ...

### Plane partitions with equal margins

A plane partition of $n$ is an table of integers $A=(a_{ij})$ which add up to $n$ and non-increase in rows and columns. For example, $$A= \begin{matrix} 331 \\ 32 \ \ \\ 11 \ \ \end{matrix}$$ is a ...
